It’s time for June’s favourites, and somehow this time it is all about Clarins. I have bought quite a few products from the brand and have been sent some samples, and most products were incredible. After all it is one of my favourite brands for a reason. There are also two beauty tools, self tanning drops and bath salts.
Here we go.
Let’s start with makeup, as there are only two products that really stood out to me. Technically three, but two are the same product just different shades. Clarins Blush & Bronzing Compact (review and swatches) my love for this bronzer is still going strong. Now that I have a tan it looks amazing on, warms up the complexion and adds some definition.
As for the Clarins Waterproof Eyeshadow Shimmering Cream Colour (review and swatches) they are phenomenal, as I’ve already said. Extremely long-lasting and incredibly beautiful on the eyes. Just make sure you don’t apply too much, as they can look a bit dry. I’ve been wearing 03 Silver Taupe at the end of May and beginning of June when I still had a very pale complexion but now 04 Copper Brown is my favourite. It looks perfect now, am I a bronze goddess already?
Oils are a necessity for me, beauty-wise, especially in AW period. My skin is very dry, and during the cold months it is flaky and sore. And I do love my daily hot shower which dries out the skin even more. But I just can’t help it. The relaxing and anti-stress effect [of a hot shower] is very important for me.
This is why I’ve decided to get some shower oils. I have started with Yves Rocher Oriental Shower Oil .
And it is really lovely indeed. It has a subtle oriental scent, as the name suggests. The way it looks and smells – it reminds me of honey. My favourite way of using it is to apply to the skin directly. It turns into milk when contacted with water, and leaves the skin smelling divine, and feeling softer and more moisturized than after a regular gel. I still
I love a good relaxing beauty product, and there is one that I just can’t live without! Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath and Shower Oil.
This is a cult product which won multiple awards and has a lot of die-hard fans, like myself. Why?
Because it works! It is the most effective relaxing beauty product that I came across, and I have tried a lot. I personally love using it as a bath oil, and also love dropping several drops on my pillow before going to bed. It is very concentrated so don’t use too much!
I also always
It’s the time when people are buying (Christmas) presents for each other, and I want to suggest a budget-friendly option – Kneipp Herbal Bath Collection 6 x 20m ( £8.95).
I recently bought myself this kit, and was very happy, as it gave me the opportunity to try different options, and decide for myself which ones I now want in a full size.
Plus, in my opinion, it is better to have six different mini scents than one big one. And those mini bottles with different colours look pretty cool and cute!

My love affair with Cowshed continues, this time I have picked up their Lazy Cow Soothing Bath & Body Oil. It is originally £20 for 100 ml but, since it was on sale for around £14, I had to get it.
This oil contains essential oils of jasmine, chamomile and sandalwood. I personally really love the relaxing and calming woody oriental scent. It is quite subtle and not as concentrated as I’d like it to be, but it’s still nice.
Multi-purpouse products are always a win-win situation, so, as you can guess, I am very happy with my purchase.
As my skin is very dry, this is a God-sent product for me. I use it as a bath oil, as a body oil and as a massage oil.
I’d like to mention that
